Prof. James O’Brien page 7 of 12 10. The diagram below is the control polygon for a Bezier curve segment. Draw the curve and
show how de Casteljau’s algorithm can be used to subdivide the curve into two halves.
Make sure your drawing is geometrically reasonable and shows correct curve tangents for
the the beginning, middle, and end of each segment.
5 points 11. Given a 3x3 matrix that encodes a 3D transformation, how does singular value decomposition separate the matrix into scale and rotation components?
